About Donna

Full time resident of Grayton Beach.

Why Donna chose Grayton Beach

The private, wide beach is quiet and beautiful yet you are still close to the activities available at Seaside, WaterColor, Grayton Beach and Destin. Bike/walking paths located right outside the neighborhood go for miles in each direction.

What makes this house unique

6 back pack beach chairs and an umbrella available as part of this rental. The 4 porches also allow you to enjoy as much outdoor living as indoor living. The screened in porches on the back of the house are fully decorated and private. The front sun porch upstairs is a great place to perfect your tan. The rocking porch downstairs is a peaceful place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or glass of wine in the evening.

Beautiful Home, Beach, and Town

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our visit to The Sandy Feet retreat! The home is beautifully decorated, spacious, and is located in a quiet neighborhood. The walk to the beach is about 10 - 15 minutes via a private walkway that is shady and easy to travel. Lots of bike paths near the neighborhood and around the entire area which makes it very bike friendly. Upon arrival we had issues with the Wifi and AC, but these were quickly rectified upon contacting the agency. My kids (ages 14 and 11) enjoyed using the pool for afternoon and evening swims. The only draw back to the area is that there is not a whole lot to do for older kids such as putt putt, etc. My son (14) was a bit bored as he is used to going to beaches with lots of activities/events that appeal to that age group. However, if you drive towards Sandestin or Destin, you can find lots of great kid friendly activities within 30 - 45 minutes from the house. The beaches in this area are absolutely gorgeous and we are so glad that we visited this area. We have visited beaches in NC, SC, GA and VA, and this was by-far the most beautiful beach we have ever visited.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Sandy Feet was the perfect getaway for us! I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, us or the dog! The house is beautiful, spacious yet cozy, and had every amenity we needed to feel right at home! With the private access to the beach right across the street and a short drive (or bike ride!) to any great dining and entertainment- it's located in the perfect spot! We had one relaxing week! We will definitely be going back!

Wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We booked a week at Sandy Feet retreat end of May to June and could not have been happier with the rental.

Everything was as advertised and the pictures don't capture just how nice this house is. The many little details in the decorating make this a wonderful fun stay, we used all 4 porches, grilled and played games late into the evening. THe house was super clean and everything worked. The neighborhood is quiet and the walk to the beach is quick and easy. All the codes etc. worked without a hiccup.

It was out first trip to Grayton/Seaside and we will definitely be back.

We were a family of 5 (3 Adults, 2 kids (17,6)

Love this home!

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed a wonderful week away at The Sandy Feet Retreat. This home was nicely decorated and very comfortable. We loved using all 4 porches including dinner every night on the quiet, private back porch. We were also grateful that they let us bring our well-behaved bulldog. We consider her part of the family so it was important for her to be with us. Thanks for sharing your wonderful home with us.
